Interviewing my old friend & teacher, co-originator of the Permaculture concept David Holmgren. We'll be talking about his latest controversial essay 'Crash on Demand: Welcome to the Brown Tech future' - which builds on his 'Future Scenarios' book published in 2007.
"David argues that if 10% of people from the global middle class reduce consumption by 50% and convert 50% of their assets to building household and local community resilience, then the fragile global economic system could crash sooner rather than later. Frightening as this seems, the longer massive economic contraction is delayed the more likely the affects of runaway climate change will eventuate".
Here's a link to his essay http://www.holmgren.com.au/wp-content...
